BMC Software’s core business has always included a dedication to the IBM Z platform. Based in Houston, TX, this longtime Sirius client assists businesses in moving to digital operations.

When the IBM z14 was announced—as has always been the case with new hardware releases—BMC worked with Sirius to ensure that it would be one of the first companies to implement the new platform for its application development and testing efforts.

Melvin Krezer, BMC senior manager, Mainframe IT explained the high expectations of BMC’s clients made the solution a perfect fit. “Our customers expect us to have and support the most current technologies,” he said. “We are perceived as a leader, and want to continue to be perceived that way, so having the latest technologies is very important. But we’re also very cost-conscious, and we found that with the z14, like the z13 before it, the technology dividends have given us the ability to do as much or more work in our development, test and QA environments with these new machines without having to acquire extra capacity to do it. That’s a value-add for jumping on board the z14.”
